New Personal Best Tonight!!

Recommended Posts

Yahoo.gif Had my best ride ever tonight. Usually I run into 34 mph at 15 off and get one or two at 34/22 off after several trys. However, today I ran 32/15, 34/15, 34/22 and got 3 at 34/28 OUT OF THE BOAT. Yahoo.gif I have never done that well before and I hadn't been on the water in three weeks. My ski partner also skied well, going into 34/35off.

Did I mention this was on a vintage Kidder Redline that I have had since 1989. I got a HO Truth this year and could not even complete a pass at 32/15 off. After a really bad fall on the truth That ski went to e-bay for someone else to enjoy. Innocent.gif Still thinking about a new ski but don't really know which to try.

You should definitely move up to a modern ski. However, you should realize that there may be some discomfort involved as you evolve. A new ski may not handle the way you want it to out of the box--first, you need to feel it out; second, binding and fin adjustments make a big difference.

Congrats on your PB and good luck with a new ski!

Do you have any suggestions? The HO Truth put a bad taste in my mouth as well as a back injury that put me out for a month. I thought about a Kidder CR-7 from Wiley's.

D3 X5. Based on reviews, more advanced ski than what you are used to, predictable, forgiving, and not too fast.

WOW. I have that same ski. My Grandpa got it for me for taking care of his yard one summer. I don't think I will ever get rid of it.

I am all looking at getting a truth though........

I had a HO Phantom Truth. Not that it's a bad ski, but I couldn't handle it. It was so fast and unforgiving. I got rid of it, and bought a CR-7. Out of the box I was skiing better on it than anything else I've skied, including a Truth. It's very forgiving and predictable.
